Aconitum proliferum BSWJ 4107

Archive entry 21.09.14

14th September 2013

One of the 'Crug Farm' plants (I went a little Aconitum crazy). Collected at Ch'ollip'o on South Korea under the number BSWJ 4107. It flowered in the greenhouse because I lost my nerve when it should have gone straight outside into the herbaceous border.
I should have learnt by now that if it isn't tough enough to survive in the herbaceous border I have to accept that and move on, but instead I try to protect it just in case, as though that were a realistic long term option. Planted out now and looking distinctly happier for some fresh air and moisture, and possibly grateful that I no longer moon over it like a teenage poet searching for inspiration.
